Personal Weekend

This past weekend Joe and myself headed north with a good friend of ours Leland. We spent most of Saturday night tying flies, drinking a few cold ones, and sharing fish stories. We fished the Salmon River on Sunday with little success; we all had fish on but pressure was high and tippet was light. Joe managed a nice fish right before dark, and then it was time for a hot meal.

Monday we made the trip west to Sandy Creek, hoping to find a few large lake run brown trout. With the river flowing a little higher than a trickle the fishing was again very slow; we each hooked a fish but nothing to hand. Around noon we decided to head further west to Oak Orchard; another great brown trout stream. We managed a few browns and a nice lake run rainbow.

Here are a few pictures from the trip:
